Back to Quilting!

I apologize for not updating this for over 3 months! All of November I was busy quilting to finish up projects for clients prior to surgery I was scheduled for on Dec 2. The surgery went well and my recovery lasted about 4 weeks before I could once again lift my arms to quilt. I was so happy to get back to quilting after New Years! I hope you all had a great holiday season.

I have not been doing much of my own work lately, but I have been doing some client quilts so I’ll show you some that I have done recently.

This first quilt is a Sue Spargo designed quilt pieced by a client with a linen background with wool and cotton applique. This is the second one of this pattern that I’ve done. The other one was all wool. Fun, fun, fun to do!

Next are three baby quilts I did for a client:

And a lap quilt made from left over blocks from a larger quilt I did last fall for a client:

I also quilted some quilts for my sister-in-law Lori. She’s completing those UFO’s now that she’s retired! This first one is a calendar quilt that I just had to do custom:

And also a colorful little Rail Fence lap quilt:

I hope you liked my little quilt show. It’s so great to be back to quilting full time again. I recently had some work done on my machine and had the guts of it upgraded. It runs so smoothly with beautiful stitches and it’s a joy to use. Here’s a photo of what it looks like now:

Even though it has a “screen”, it’s not computerized. I still do all my quilting hand guided free motion. Here’s the first quilt I worked on….it’s the rail fence from above. You can see how bright the new lights are. It also has a black light that I can use when quilting white on white:

Hopefully it won’t be so long before I share more of my work with you. Thanks for taking a look!
